Chesapeake Bay Foundation Offers Training for Public Speaking About the Bay

(RICHMOND, VA)—The Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) is looking for volunteers to join our "Speaker's Bureau" and attend a training session in Richmond on May 1. The training is open to people interested in public speaking about issues affecting the Bay and its rivers and streams. CBF relies on volunteers from its Speakers Bureau to give presentations to civic, service, and social organizations across the region.

Join CBF on May 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for the Richmond Speaker's Bureau Training at the Downtown YMCA, 2 W Franklin Street. The session includes briefings on the state of the Bay's health, the latest legislative issues, and the science-based strategies that are needed to save the Bay. The training will equip participants with the skills and confidence to give strong presentations on key issues. Participants are encouraged to identify speaking opportunities at local groups and events.

Registration is required. Participants can register online here or can contact Blair Blanchette at 804-780-1392 or e-mail bblanchette@cbf.org.
